Dariv has some *412 Progressive Shocks* for sale that he has only used for two months.
He says he needs the heavy duty ones. I went to this link he provided, and tried to figure out how a person chooses the right ones.
I was able to do a search and find this chart of shocks that will fit the vn750:
There are 7 different series available in the stock 12 1/2" length. (Those are highlighted in yellow print).
Then there are 3 shorter lengths, the shortest being 11", to allow lowering the frame at the rear.
(I will put aside the *damper only* series 12 for now.)
I`m trying to understand the difference between the series 412, 430 and 440 shocks, in both regular and Heavy Duty versions.
There was a reference to the series 412 as the *BEST VALUE* (lowest cost) shock, so I think this may be a *Good, Better, Best* scenario.
Are the internals of the three series identical, (or nearly so), and the differences mostly cosmetic?
Can anyone help me understand these differences?
I`m not looking to buy new shocks just now, only to understand the options.
